The Doobie Brothers - China Grove

When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around San Antone
And the folks are risin' for another day
Roundabout their homes

The people of the town are strange
And they're proud of where they came

Well, you're talkin bout China Grove (China)
Oh-oh-oh, China Grove, oh-oh-oh

Well, the preacher and the teacher
Lord, they're a caution
They are the talk of the town
When the gossip gets to flyin'
And they ain't lyin'
When the sun goes fallin' down

They say that the father's insane
And dear Mrs. Perkins a game

We're talkin' 'bout the China Grove (China)
Oh-oh-oh, China Grove, oh-oh-oh

But every day there's a new thing comin'
The ways of an Oriental view
The sheriff and his buddies
With their samurai swords
You can even hear the music at night

Bands you might like
